I haven't watched the whole video yet ( so far it's great! :) ) but one suggestion I have is using a chessbase board instead of the ICC interface your are using or at least having the board across the whole recorded area so that the board would be bigger

I would like to use the chessbase board, but is there a way to do arrows/highlights with chessbase light?

Yeah, there is

Alt for green
Alt+Shift for red
Alt+Ctrl for yellow

To highlight a square just press on it holding one of the colour combinations and to draw an arrow press on the square you want the arrow to start from and holding the mouse button drag it to the square where you want it to end

Nice! I was definitely trying to figure that out before. I will definitely use CB then. That was the only reason I wasn't before.

Glad you are okay and recovering, and that you held it together for this game.

BTW, for those who were wondering about 28...Rd6 as a defense to 28.d7, then 29.d8=Q is a very nice reply. I know it took me a minute to spot it.

It's always nice to see your opponent not take things seriously and give you a chance to play a move like 43.Rb5 He was lost anyhow, but maybe he could have given you some more some more to think about after 43...Rb6 (though Re5 should still win if you don't fall asleep).

I agree with you about the time usage. I have a number of games where I used only 15 - 20 minutes for the entire game, but they were not against high rated players and they were not complicated games, usually with very deep theoretical foundations.

Nice win. I've been trying to work on my endgame so this double rook and pawn endgame was quite a gem.

One quick note. After white got the rooks on the seventh, Black was basically playing for a draw wasn't he, even with that advanced e-pawn. Since it seems like you could just keep either checking the black king or shuffle the rook between g and g-file to threaten mate in most subsequent variations. I.e. Like at 25:00 after Black's 44. Ra2, white always had Rf4+/Rg4+. In that sense, f5 must have been an objective blunder, right? Did he share any thoughts after the game or was there no post game analysis?

We didn't analyse after the game. Yes, I have at least a draw after f5, and it certainly was a mistake considering he had Bf5. However, just because I have an automatic draw does not make it certainly all that bad. The reason for it being bad is that I don't have to take the draw. It was pretty obvious based on how fast he was moving and just the kind of simple ideas he was playing that he was going to be very happy with a draw. So, possibly he thought that the passed e-pawn gave him drawing chances, but as the game showed I have a way to win it.
